I've found all my Outlook data files which contain all my emails at the following paths:

C:\Users\C\My Documents\Outlook Files\

I've migrated all these and copied it to my new machine at the same directories however my configuration is not there! None of my email pop/smtp settings are there, only the pst is loaded with my emails but all other configuration is gone, where precisely is that configuration stored?

Have you checked the registry? HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Outlook seems like a good place to look, or you could search the entire registry for data that you're looking for (e.g., your server name). – Scott Aug 29 '12 at 21:46

This tells the locations of the files but there is not a good way to transfer your account settings with these files. Try Windows Easy Transfer.
